While Zack Snyder is known for delivering the goods in the form of mind blowing visual sequences in his big budget films, today comes news of a much smaller project from the visionary director. Snyder took to his Twitter account to release the poster for his latest project, a short film called Snow Steam Iron. As mentioned in the tweet, the short film will be coming soon, though no other specifics were given for the film’s release. From the look of the poster the film’s plot appears to revolve around a murder. Snyder mentions that the film was shot over the course of a few days with, according to the post, some of Snyder’s talented (and unnamed) friends and was shot for no money. You can see the newly released poster for the film below.

Snyder, while known for his visual displays, has been criticized in other aspects of his filmmaking, namely, pacing and story. While I thought the fight between Batman and Superman in Dawn of Justice was great (until the Martha incident), it was a full two hours into the movie before fans got to see some real action, and at times the film seemed to really drag (though my position remains the same, I did not, by any means, hate the film). The short film, Snow Steam Iron could be an opportunity to for Snyder to improve on his storytelling ability on a smaller scale. With no room for the film to drag, Snyder would be able to easier construct a cohesive story arc. Additionally, it sounds like a way for him to connect with his family, which is always a good thing.
Snyder’s family faced a horrible tragedy earlier this year with his daughter committing suicide. This caused Snyder to step away from the upcoming Justice League film. Joss Whedon, who helmed both Avengers movies, was brought it to take his place.
